Boult came into the bowling attack and broke brilliant 199 runs stand for the 3rd wicket. The left-arm pace bowler dismissed Sam Curran with a good catch by Devon Conway.

He ended with a brilliant yorker getting the wicket of Gus Atkinson picking his 5th wicket. Boult finished including impressive figures of 5 for 51 in 9.1 overs.

He did a superb job during rain curtailed 2nd One-day international match at Rose Bowl, Southampton by picking 2 early wickets.
